The Future is a Plethora of Strange Caviar
by Anthony Wetmore (TheMisterPipes, GhostConch)
Say hello to the Imperial Spherificator, your newest absolutely unnecessary must have kitchen appliance. What is this strange technology? Why am I drawn to it’s sleek curves and bright blue light? I will tell you! The Imperical Spherificator will change the way you play with your food. Imagine garnishing a roast lamb with a cool mint jelly caviar, topping your favorite ice cream with your other favorite ice cream, or even a refreshing fruit flavored mix in for your morning yogurt? Sounds too good to be true, but this device promises just that, as quoted here:
“any food that can be liquefied and blended, mixes it with a bit of sodium alginate and then ejects drops of it into a calcium chloride. …the reaction creates a thin membrane that encases the liquid in a gelatinous sphere. …texture like caviar, or if you use dairy and freeze…[like] Dippin’ Dots.”
The Imperial Sphereificator is still in it’s funding stage over at Kickstarter but they’re getting very close.
